Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 892–893. Reviews the book, A Biofeedback Primer by Edward B. Blanchard and Leonard H. Epstein (1978). Blanchard and Epstein provide in this volume a sober and highly readable review of research related primarily to the clinical applications of biofeedback. The book is cautiously written and will be of help to clinicians in evaluating the efficacy and utility of biofeedback in the treatment of a variety of disorders. The book presents a well-written, easily understandable overview to the field. This was the intended purpose and the authors have realized this modest goal. The authors manage to present many sets of complex data in a readable and accurate fashion. Overall, this is a book that will be quite useful to practitioners who are not familiar with research on biofeedback. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
